«Holding it together» is a collaborative performance series based on a desire for an aesthetic of and experiencing exchange. From 2012 to 2015, the Zurich-based choreographer and dancer Jessica Huber has repeatedly invited artists to work in various collaborations on how we deal with the darkness of our time and how we connect and communicate with our environment.
Robert Steijn and Geraldine Chollet both have a penchant for rituals and are fascinated by all things mystical. During their research for the project «holding it together», the two dancers shared their rituals and treatments with each other. Robert has created a dance called «Deer and the Snake Dance», and Geraldine was inspired by the «Reine des Vaches», the queen of cows at the alpine descent in autumn. By swapping their animal dances, the two create new rituals and ask themselves what it means to be there for each other.
